Certainly, one of the most popular student tour destinations, Italy will not disappoint! The incredible depth of history in every corner of this country allows for groups to customize their trips in a way that is uniquely their own. Are you looking for history? Let’s start with Rome – explore the Vatican, Forum, Colosseum, Pantheon – just to offer a few suggestions. Down every street lies a sweet chapel or historical fountain, walking tours are the perfect fit for a city like Rome.
For our student performers we have just as varied set of options as we have groups. Indoors, outdoors, church setting, public venue. Music and Italian culture as intrinsically linked, composers from every era and every genre have their roots in Italy. Palestrina to Puccini – Mozart to Aaron Copland. They loved Italy and so will you!
While Italian cities are full of energy, history and vibrant entertainment, the small quiet villages hold a special place in the culture of the country. Learn about chalk making or a specific type of cheese or perhaps spend some time watching a craftsmen fashion something out of leather. A wonderful mix of quaint settings and the hustle and bustle of the city life are sure to create a memorable trip for your students.
